Please help, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
I spend more time together with the 10 week old puppy and it has bonded with me stronger. My girlfriend is frustrated and her feelings hurt because the dog doesn't seem to care as much about her as it does for me.
What steps can we take to ensure a bond develops between the two of them?
I'm considering having her do as much feeding as possible and also taking lead of the leash on walks.
Thanks for any help!

Well, this is a pup only 10 weeks old. The bond is just starting to form with you. It takes time. Tell her not to get her feeling hurt. There's really nothing really to fret over. She could feed some meals, be a active part of training. Allow her to take the pup when she runs errands, etc.

I will say that GSD seem to really bond strongly with one person. That is normal for them. I am that person for my boy, we have a partnership (he's 3 years old). I swear he knows what my next step is going to be and is waiting to be part of it. He thinks I'm the best thing EVER! lol He has a bond with my husband and girls but it's different & special in it's own way.
